Is It Time To Walk Away

My husband and I have been married 5 years in the last 5 years he has only worked maybe a grand total of 2 years. Over the past few years the arguements have gotten increasingly worse the first time he shoved me into a chair during an arguement, that escalated into him bending my thumb back to almost touching my wrist, the most recent time I smacked him and he slapped me across the face and knocked me to the floor. He doesn't work now, barely cares for the 3 children we have, and only cleans the house when I complain enough about it or get up and do it myself. I think I love my husband but find myself thinking I'm not in love with him anymore. Any advise as to what I should do would be greatly appreciated.

When i comment to your question in the Q/A and said there are few exceptiins to honoring the vows of a marriage...this right here is a perfect example of a reason NOT to honor them...ABUSE of any kind is not will only escalate...NO man or woman is worth matter how much you or someone loves them!<br />
The best course of action in my opinion is pack up and leave or force him to leave...<br />
I have never hit a woman and never will...even though i have been slapped a few times...<br />
There is still NO EXCUSE for it...EVER!!!!

The physical abuse is only going to escalate, without seeing a counselor, if he refuses then separate, if you can. Sounds like he isn't supporting the children anyway, so if nothing changes, LEAVE!
